Is it worth it?

Most of you out there have at least a tiny little spark flickering inside you. Depending on your decisions, the people around you and maybe your circumstances, this spark might grow to be a flame or it can gradually die out.

I sort of had this moment two years ago when I could barely detect the spark dancing within me (you know how sometimes you thought you realised something but only to find out you actually didn’t?). It came and went. Then all of a sudden I could see it much clearer, and that was when I realised the little spark I had was making a difference in this world with photography.

My wish is to make it a part of me, until I can’t do it anymore.

Am I willing to forego financial security to achieve it? I think so..

What about the comfort of being with my family? Mmm, maybe..

Doing things that you have never done before and putting yourself in situations out of the norm? Yes, shouldn’t be a problem..

These were my thoughts then, and even now they are lingering in my mind. The thing that keeps me going is the fact that I consider the result to be worth all these sacrifices.

Picture yourself in 5 to 10 years time, living life the way you want to, on your own terms. Work towards it, because it is worth it.
